Re: Dead bike

What do you mean by dead? Do you have any lights? Panel lights, indicators, brake lights when the ignition is turned on. Which wires did you short and what condition are they in now?

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Put the car back together temporarily, complete with knackered EGR valve, so I can get it of the drive and open my garage door. Going to need to get the bike out tomorrow.

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Yet another gripe from me, sorry.

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

In the scheme of things a new EGR isn't too pricey tbh Mav. 43 delivered, although I can ill afford even that atm! It's the potential cost of the DPF clean or replacement which is the big headache....

Re: MCN request

Not quite sure what he means about "getting involved in the retro scene". At the age of 64, and with an 18 year old curvy, I am retro already! :D
